Cozy and Convenient

Even though it is on a busy street the Lamplighter was very quiet. The management seems very concerned about the details. The lobby is inviting and beautifully decorated, the parking lot clean and the... more

Good bang for your buck!

Huge clean room located near SDSU, but you couldn't tell, it was nice and quiet! Close enough to walk to restaurants. Did not utilize the pool or the grab and go breakfast. Was a nice place to just g... more

Hello andylb211998, Thank you for choosing our inn for your visit to San Diego! As you mentioned, we are very close to SDSU, just a mile away. And we do our best to maintain a quiet family friendly environment so that all of our guests can have an enjoyable stay. While we may not be in the hub of the touristy part of town, there are hundreds of restaurants on "the Boulevard" of every type of ethnicity you can think of! If you need any suggestions next time you're in town, ask our front desk staff and we will be happy to help. Our pool is open all year long and is being sanitized daily. We also ask our guests to please abide by the social distancing guidelines during this time. Maybe next time you stay, you'll get to relax in our lush pool area. Unfortunately, because of the current situation with the pandemic, our breakfast room is closed. The complimentary "grab and go" breakfast consists of a pastry, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, an orange and a bottle of water for those that would like a quick bite to eat in the morning. We really appreciate you taking the time to review us so that potential guests can see what we are all about. We hope to see you again soon! Call us directly for the best price, service and selection. Yours in Hospitality, Michelle C. Front Office Manager

Disappointed

With a child in college nearby we thought this would be a great place to stay on all visits. Staff was nice and welcoming but accommodations, cleanliness and equipment are in need of care. Don’t know ... more

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback with our Trip Advisor community. Our goal is to exceed every guest’s expectations and we take it very seriously when we fail. It is sometimes a challenge to set the right expectations for our guests. We strive to educate our guests on TripAdvisor, our website, and on the phone so they have the right expectations about us. We have many repeat guests who continue to choose us because of what we are, a family owned, AAA 2-diamond hotel, with great rates, many free amenities, NEVER ANY HIDDEN FEES, and an incredible staff! We are very proud of our hotel. I have shared your review with our team, we have looked into the room you stayed in to find ways to make any necessary improvements. You are a valued guest, and we do hope you give us another opportunity in the future. Respectfully, Gilda Prado General Manager

Hello Adrienne S., Thank you for your awesome review! Our goal is to provide excellent service along with clean, comfortable accommodations at competitive rates and we are so happy to see that we accomplished this for you and your family. Our general manager, Gilda, leads by example on how to display true hospitality. We are very fortunate to have her! We are glad to see that your fur babies enjoyed their stay as well! We realize that being able to travel with pets is very important to many of our guests and it is our pleasure to be a pet friendly property. We allow pets up to 50 pounds and up to 2 pets per room at $15+tax per pet. With the pandemic situation that we are all dealing with, we know that cleanliness is key to making our guests and staff feel safe. Our team is doing everything we can to follow the guidelines set by the authorities. We require that anyone entering the lobby wear a mask, and we sanitize the front desk, pool area and rooms throughout the day. Thank you for mentioning that we are near SDSU. We are only about 1 mile away from the university-just a 20 minute walk through the residential area. We are centrally located to many tourist attractions, 20 to 30 minutes away from most. And there are plenty of eateries near us. We thank you for recommending us and look forward to serving you again! Call us directly for the best price, selection and service. Yours in Hospitality, Michelle C.
